Patient & Carer Information
Supporting you every step of the way
The North East London Cancer Alliance aims to make sure every cancer patient has access to the same levels of high-quality care and support, no matter who you are or where you live.
At each stage of your journey, we work with our partners to provide a range of support and services for cancer patients. Please read through the information on each stage so you know what to expect, what support you should be receiving and where to turn for further help. We are here for you.
Prepare for your appointment and make sure you attend when you are asked to. It could save your life. In the majority of cases no cancer will be found, giving you peace of mind. If anything is found, the earlier the better so it can be treated.
